Give time. Loverman Says: Giving time is the ultimate romantic gesture. It will mean a great deal if you’re usually stretched for time and you choose to give up the a day to spend with your beloved, doing things together that have nothing to do with work, raising a family, paying bills, etc. Just allow the day to be about the two of you together. As part of this, be thoroughly attentive, listen, and take the chance to share dreams and hopes for the future, including renewing dreams that might have been taken for granted over time.
- If you can, find babysitters for the kids so that you’re truly alone. If not, let the kids know that this is a day for “mom and dad” and get them helping in making it special.
